Poem: August By Masesebe Ramahuma

Masesebe waa Ramahuma


Seconds after delivering,

She requested the nurses to see what to do with the baby

Minutes after delivering

She told the nurses that labour pains are not painful

Hours  after delivering

She said the pain she had felt like swallowing bitter volcanic mud


Minutes after delivering,

She said, I was abandoned, abused and accused for billion things

I am now addicted to pain, been afraid and aggressiveness is in my DNA

With or without you my baby, Mama is lone

Always alone because  anger is her daily bread


Looking at the world i feel annoyed ashamed because none of you appreciated my worth

I may be #attacked  avoided and not be appreciated,

No matter how awful this world may be, my worth won’t be assaulted attacked nor avoided

My worth won’t be avoided,


I am able, assertive daughter of almighty.

I know my worth, I am just painfully Awesome.

Thank you for nothing.
